Logo #158: Jaguares

Much like Blixa Bargeld of Einstürzende Neubauten appropriated the scribblings of an unknown Toltec for that band's public image, Rock en español band Jaguares borrowed this design from an unknown Mayan in 1996 for the "El equilibrio de los jaguares" LP. Singer Saúl Hernández: "It's one of the paintings that are in the caves in Veracruz, and this image represents the hunter in the cave of the Malinche." Here's Jaguares now with their smash hit "Te lo pido por favor", which works visually as a companion piece to this galactic symphony.
